to the united states. >> unless he makes it clear that he's behind kerry, they won't take kerry seriously. >> rose: why is that hard to do? >> because i think, because the president, we'll see but i think the president has basically decided the middle east is a place he wants to turn his back on. he wants to focus on the greener pastures of asia. >> i would say if i may that the risk is not just domestic, it's global. because of the linkage, if you fail in the middle east it resonates in north korea and vice versa. so the risk is broader than just the domestic price to be paid. >> rose: we continue this evening with a look at the frontier of medicine and how information, data is being used to understand illness and to provide us with an early warning. we talk with jeffrey hammerbacher, he is chief scientist at cloudera. >> and we went through a period in which data generation seemed to grow exponentially and that lead to the requirement to build software that could then collect and analyze that data. so if you look at the world wide web, all of a sudden we were taking all the documents, a
of state kerry returns to the region in a short while to pursue the work, these differences will surface. they were not-- they came out unilaterally by the president in the speech but they will come up fully when secretary kerry returns to the region. >> rose: but how did barack obama come to the presidency with what attitudes did israel, what commitments, what sense of significance for him? >> i think you have two book ends to this story. the cairo speech of 2009 and the injuries lem speech of 2013. and he comes to the cairo speech, which was a speech to the arab and muslim world, the belief that bush had ruined america's reputation in the arab and muslim world. and that he needed to fix that. after all, we had 150,000 troops deployed in afghanistan and iraq. he was about to send more. we needed to improve our relations with the arabs and the muslims. and if we could achieve that, i think he felt that would redound to the benefit of israel because then the arabs would be prepared to engage with israel in response to our influence on them, and israel would then respond. that was essentia
. back to washington. >> shannon: secretary of state john kerry wrapping up a whirlwind trip to iraq. he flew to baghdad a short time ago, days after the 10th anniversary of the start of the war in iraq. kerry's mission, press iraqi leaders on ending sectarian violence and urging iran to syria. i'm shannon bream. live from the nation's capitol, america's news headquarters. we go to steve centanni more. >> the central issue is whether iraq's president or prime minister, a shiite muslim is helping to support the assad regime in syria, allowing the over flights by iran. now, if so, that raises serious questions about u.s./iraqi relations going forward. secretary kerry met with iraqi prime minister malkey in his unannounced stroz baghdad today. and those iranian flights were at the top of the agend a. the secretary and the prime minister had a private meeting that kerry described as a spirited discussion. when it was over, the secretary told reporters, quote, anything that supportings president assad is problematic. i made it very clear to the prime minister that the overflights from iran ar
between the israelis and palestinians can be restarted. with the new secretary of state john kerry along on this trip, some in the administration hope a new spirit of collaboration can be established. there's also a new coalition government in israel, one that remains fractured when it comes to the establishment of a palestinian state. it is no secret that prime minister benjamin netanyahu and president barack obama have not always seen eye-to-eye on the best road to peace and that's just the beginning for president obama on this historic trip. he has to deal with nuclear threats from iran and provide a road map for how far the united states will go in defense of israel. we will get insights to all of these challenges for president obama with the former ambassador to israel, martin indyk who joins us from washington where he is the vice president and director for foreign policy at the brookings institution. ambassador indyk, good to have you back on the program, sir. >> thanks, tavis, good to be with you. tavis: i gues
: secretary of state john kerry met with afghan president hamid karzai today, and said the two nations are "on the same page" about making peace with the taliban. good evening. i'm gwen ifill. >> woodruff: and i'm judy woodruff. on the newshour tonight, we assess the challenges ahead for kerry and the u.s., winding down the war in afghanistan and dealing with tensions in iraq, syria, and the middle east. >> ifill: then, we update the movement on immigration reform, as president obama uses a citizenship ceremony to prod congress to send him a bill.
. secretary of state john kerry has now issued his first statement about pastor sayid abedinny. kerry said, "he is deeply concerned about be a deepny's fate and calls for him to be immediately released." kerry's statement comes after abedinny's wife receive adler from her husband saying he was wasn't and refused treatment. he writes,s "i did not recognize myself. my hair was shaven, under my eyes were swollen three time what is they should have been. my face was so we. last weeken -- face was swollen." last week, i talked to his wife about him. >> they are grieving that loss, they are very clingy to me. many times, i'm mess, too crying and praying for a quick return for him. >> on our air last week here and iran is accusing you abedini of being a spy. he said he is jailed because of his christian faith. >>> well, newly elected pope francis meeting with his predecessor this afternoon for the first time as a pontiff. this is the first time such a meeting between the past and current popes has been possible for more than 600 years. pope francis flew by helicopter to castel gandolfo to meet wi
. they know that this isn't the beginning, but they do think that secretary kerry is coming back here at the end of the week to try to lay the groundwork with benjamin netanyahu and israel to start some talks. president obama is here to, as he said, listen. he said in the press conference yesterday that his main role in this visit is to just listen to the palestinians. it's a lesson he learned from his mom, he said, because the palestinian palestinians often feel that they are not heard. and so he really wants to see what kind of mood there is now and what it would take to really prod some sort of discussion to come into action. and, you know, they felt a little bit neglected and it's the president's time to remind him that even though he has been working very closely with the israelis, he has not forgotten that he wants to create some sort of open space for peace talks to come into fruition with secretary kerry now at the state department. >> very interesting you bring up secretary kerry. a second ago, jess, we saw president obama greeting secretary of state john kerry on the tarmac
. >> with the president's trip to israel, the jordan, toothier talking to turkey, and then secretary kerry's trip to iraq, get the idea there's some consensus about what to do next. >> that's a fair point. i think you have been tracking this very well, and you also are aware of the growing reports of the arms shipments involving countries like qatar, jordan, jordan, and others. 50 or 60 plain loads of equipment gotton to the insurgents and perhaps secretary kerry is thinking of ways to ramp that up further. on the other hand, every one of the countries you have indicated also has had ropes to -- recents to want to hold pack and they're reasons that are serious, iraq may me hoping assad holds on to power. turkey may be hoping to limit its involvement because of the possibility of spillover. jordan has a terrible refugee problem from syrians coming over the border, and it's more concerned about that, not so much whether it wants to help with one side winning. so i'm not sure i'm seeing a coalescing of a fundmental strategy. i hope more armed shipments can make enough of a difference but we could see months
that that it's doable and so i think they'll have to follow through. he said secretary of state kerry is going to do a lot of this and he put his hand on kerry's shoulder essentially to say "he's my man." but the people around the president say that he got indications, he thinks, despite the language in public, that each of these leaders is ready to take some steps that will advance getting back to the peace talks of getting to the core issues. >> brown: one key issue is the question of the israeli settlements. what's your sense after hearing what the president had to say today? >> warner: from what we can figure out here, the administration has this idea that there will have to be some reciprocal confidence-building measures. now that's the term from the old post-oslo 20 years of negotiations that didn't really pan out but that there will have to be some taken by each side and as one official said to us today, that will kind of commit each side to getting invested in this process. one of the ideas being floated -- things like releasing palestinian prisoners on the part of the israelis or tran
, and congressman franks signing a letter to the secretary of state, john kerry, for more involvement. i'll get to the congressman in a moment, but jordan, how is his health, and what have you learned about him? >> well, bill, we know for the first time that pass tar said has -- pastor said has gotten a medical review, and he was promised he would be move today a hospital outside of the prison. this all happened this week, though there's no indication when he will be moved, and we don't trust iran until it happens. but at least there was a medical review confirming what we've been talking about, the internal breeding and the refusal to treat that with anything more than just, basically, tylenol. bill: you know, jordan, i'm wondering, are the iranians listening to you? because you and others have been on this publicly for some time now. >> i think when you look at all of the actions that have taken place the congressional hearing, all of the media buildup of to that hearing, the silence from the state department, and now we can report part two. after the congressional hearing, after 550,000 peop

to the palestinian people. i hope that your visit him along with the visit of the secretary of state kerry help us turn a page in relations with the palestinians. let us sit down at the negotiating table. let us work together to achieve the historic compromise that will end our conflict once and for all. let me conclude on a personal note. i know how valuable the time and energy is of the american president, yourself. this is the 10th time we have met since you became president and since i became prime minister. you have chosen israel is your fort and then you -- venue your foreign visit and your second term. thank you for the investment you have made in our relationship and in strengthening that friendship and alliance between our two countries. it is deeply appreciated. you have come here on the eve of passover. i've always considered it it as our most cherished holiday. it celebrates the jewish passage from slavery to freedom. has alsohe ages, it inspired people struggling for freedom, including the founding fathers of the united states. it is a profound honor to host you, the leader of the fre
two new governments work together? secretary kerry wants to prioritize this among half a dozen issues, and you have a new israeli government that cannot help deal with this issue. i don't think this president wants the next four years a two state solution to expire. that is a strong statement. but that is really true when you think of the pace of settlement activity. that is not a big concern. even if you can do a grand deal, you can preserve the option for a two state solution, that is very important. even though i do not think there is any drama or confrontation between these two leaders now, i think it would be a mistake, because everyone in washington has forgotten about the palestinian issue, and people in the middle east have bigger issues on their own agendas, but somehow this issue would fade out. i fear there will be an upsurge in violence or you will be digging fresh graves and be left with old problems. each side knows that this issue is not going away. it would be a mistake to put the focus on some sort of immediate confrontation. i don't say that. i do see that these two
voted to authorize the use of force. some apologized later like john kerry. some brave people came out against it as you showed. barbara boxer, dick durbin, paul wellstone, but there is a tendency among democrats that really worries me. it's to act as though maybe their patriotism is possibly going to be called into question and they're always appeasing these bullies who question their very americanness and we saw that over and over at 9/11 and particularly in the run-up to war. it was a little bit frightening to be against the war as i was. we weren't really singled out and ridiculed, but we were right. they will go down in history as having done the wrong thing. it requires a lot of vigilance to make sure nothing like that happens again. >> given what the congresswoman said earlier, are we still at risk despite their bold and creative witness of a march to war of this magnitude or is there more accountability today? >> we would hope so. joan is absolutely right. there's bipartisan kulpaablety that dates back to the clinton administration. just look at the scorecard and this is where
. the obvious question remains, what more should or can we do? secretary kerry says providing direct humanitarian aid is a positive step. the syrian people need to know that they have this the support of the united states. the european allies led by france and great britain are considering ways to provide legal assistance to the opposition. the argument for arming the opposition will shift the balance of power. what are the chances of a success if we do not provide assistance? onlyassad falls and it is a question of when, we need to ensure that our own security interest will be protected. this means a promise many new government that any powerful weapon will be secured and destroyed. tois our response ability determine whether this can be done that ensures arms will not fall into terrorist organizations. i'm encouraged the syrian opposition chose the prime minister for exile yesterday. time is of the essence. there are difficult decisions that must be made in the days and weeks ahead. we continue to push for un security council resolution. do we provide military advisers and training

thing. it's clear that the administration is -- if you looked at senator kerry's trip, every day on that trip, you saw him in a sense evolving in terms of what we might be doing on syria. i suspect the administration is taking a hard look at and a fresh look at what can be done, and i suspect this trip is going to very much add to that. why don't i pause there. >> very good. thank you. david. >> thank you. everyone. it's good to see everyone. good to be on the panel with my colleagues. i just came back yesterday and i must say i'm -- well, dennis and i have our own cop very generalses. i might be a little less upbeat, having returned from there, and it could be a question of how these things are put forward. but i agree with him definitely on the public piece. i cannot see obama but succeed on the public part of the trip. it really is two trips in one act least to israel. the public part, israel, you'd be hard pressed to find a ford minivan reside full of israel yous who are antiamerican whatever if the differences have been with obama, for the most part, every stop along the vis

words turn into good deeds? to that end, secretary of state john kerry is scheduled to come back here tomorrow and begin actually the really hard work of diplomacy to see if he can get the israelis and palestinians to negotiate about maybe negotiating about a peace deal. still a long way off and despite all the applause and accolades of this trip, i don't think there is any real optimism it will make a huge difference on the ground, at least not immediately. back to you. >> brian: i know the president says it's time for both sides to drop preconditions and just go and talk. so if they could agree to agree to talk eventually, that would be progress. >> anna: that would be progress. but there have been a lot of harsh critics stepping forward. newt gingrich being one, saying this is something that western leaders typically do sometimes to make themselves feel good, that so much of the arab world, you know, speaking candidly, mind you, but that something that they're just doing to make themselves feel a bit better. >> steve: leend la vittert, we u.s. very much and good job. he quoted his
